Network Data Services for Healthcare Orgs:
Med Advantage delivers a proven, robust software solution designed to maintain and ensure the accuracy of healthcare and insurance payers’ provider databases. Our service reliably matches and joins data from multiple sources.
Our data services are performed via a secure, hosted web service (ASP) which scrubs payers’ internal provider file data to identify inaccurate and incomplete information. We can then enhance your data with primary source verified information from our comprehensive database. This includes office-based physicians, practitioners, hospitals and facilities, business entities, pharmacists, pharmacies, ancillary providers and organizations. We track providers across time, including changes in address, name, license status and affiliations. This service is also actionable and calculates match scores for automatically interpreting and implementing results based on client-specific rules.
